  1. I have a Hatsan AT44S Long QE 9 Shot – .25 Cal that I can hit a 50 cent piece with at 35 yards! It should to be able to kill Coyotes, Rabbits, Racoon, etc. There are numerous YouTube videos of others hunting with them. The external air tank at 4500psi was expensive, but a must if you plan to use the gun to hunt. You get about 18 shots before you really need to recharge the tank on the gun. "https://www.airgunproshop.com/shop/refurbished-hatsan-at44s-long-qe-9-shot-25-cal/" Here's a link to a site if you want one too!
  2. Voted Saturday! I was in and out in 10 minutes or so. No long lines, but the office was busy with all the machines being utilized. Good to see others getting out to vote instead of sitting back and waiting for everyone else to decide what the direction of this country will go. Whether it's standing in the long lines on the 8th, mail in ballots, or early voting, it's better than being too lazy to spend the 10 minutes it takes to cast your vote!
  3. I too grew up hunting small game ( squirrels, rabbits, and groundhogs ) just to have a little meat on the table, as Dad always put it! Now I hardly ever get a chance, and most of the younger folks see it as just a bunch of nasty animals or rats with long tails. What they don't know is that they are delicious and great for building a social bond with the old man! When will they learn to skin and eat something without going to Walmart for those microwave packaged bits of "almost" chicken?
  4. OK, I just can't see letting the "parasites (government workers)" go.  I have known many of the folks that the Department Of Safety / Homeland Security that do "work" in the Handgun Permit Section, and those are some of the lowest paid government workers you will ever meet.   Otherwise, I'm all in for Constitutional Carry!  Why on earth do we have to pay for a right provided by our State's and the Federal Government's Constitutions?  Do you have to go through formal training to speak freely, choose or participate in a religion or religious activity?  The 1st and 2nd
  5. When I think of all the years I served this country, have paid my taxes every year, work a full time job since graduating High School, and try to explain to my kids (All of which are now young adults) that this is the greatest nation and one of the best states to live in, I just can't get over feeling like a second rate citizen when I look at maps like the one in this link: "http://www.opencarry.org/maps/map-open-carry-of-a-properly-holstered-loaded-handgun/"   Just the other day I asked a very stubborn permit carrying individual the one question he had no answer for:  At the poin
  6. Here's a full write up on this: "http://newsletters.getresponse.com/archive/tfa/TN-Constitutional-Carry-Update-Voters-disenfranchised-229675501.html?e=&u=izZc"   So much for a Republican controlled State!  Wonder if it will be any better if there is a Republican controlled Federal government?  Maybe it's time for some "Change" we can count on!
  7. 2013 VW Passat TDI deisel!  45 to 50 mpg on the HWY, 30 in the cities just driving around.  Love to drive it as it is very comfortable.  I average about 636 miles per tank with combined driving HWY and City.
  8. I use "http://www.gunbot.net/ammo" as a starting point to get a feel for average prices, and if the shipping is right I buy from the cheapest retailer.  Otherwise, I use "http://www.targetsportsusa.com/" "http://www.ableammo.com/" "http://www.sgammo.com/" "http://www.ammoman.com/" etc.  I will caution that shipping costs vary big time, and that determines the better deal when I average that into the costs per round. As far as security and buying online vs the local Walmart or local gun shop, I haven't had any problems at all from online sales.  I like getting home from work an
  9. Here is a quote form an email that I got from the NRA-ILA Friday:   "On Tuesday, March 8, the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear Senate Bill 1483, sponsored by state Senate Senator Mark Green (R-22). On Wednesday, March 9, the House Civil Justice Subcommittee is scheduled to hear SB 1483’s companion bill, House Bill 1748, sponsored by state Representative Judd Matheny (R-47). SB 1483 /HB 1748 would allow anyone who is 21 years of age or older who is not prohibited by law from possessing a handgun, to carry a handgun without a permit.  This important legislation wo
  10. Glad to hear that you guys haven't had the problems we have with the coyotes, but on the 147 acres that three guys are hunting on over the last 10 years we have saw a major drop in Deer (Used to be able to kill about 3 each per year without hurting the population---now you are lucky to see a single buck or doe for an entire season), Wild Turkey (Used to be three flocks of 15-40 birds constantly moving around the farm and surrounding farms---I saw a single flock this last year with about 15 birds total, and no one killed a gobbler this year.  There hasn't been any changes in the property b
  11. Every year the TWRA asks for suggestions to current and future regulations.  I have written many times about just this very subject since retiring from the USARMY in 1998.  The TWRA will never evolve, but eventually the current leadership might just make it's influence a non-issue through retirement.  Common sense is lacking at all levels in the TWRA structure of leadership!   A clincher statement from one of my suggestions was something like this:  What Hillbilly, Redneck, or otherwise low life "coyote" hunter would ever want to face society, or his wife / spouse, a
  12. Amazon has a scope that I bought and currently use, but it is the most expensive that I use on 22-25 Cal weapons: 4-16x50mm Scope W front AO adjustment. Red/green Illumination mil-dot reticle. Comes with extended sunshade and Heavy Duty Ring Mount "http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005ICG6IK?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00"   CDNN Sports has this one that is currently on a .223:   AIM SPORTS 3-9X40 TITAN DUAL ILLUMINATED SCOPE   "http://www.cdnnsports.com/aim-sports-3-9x40-titan-dual-illuminated-scope.html"   Amazon has the scope I have on m
  13. I purchase one from these guys a couple years ago, but they were fast and exactly what I was in need of for the project I was working on!   "http://www.cncwarrior.com/Muzzle-Devices-s/1822.htm"
  14. I don't care about what the polls are saying at this point in choosing a candidate to beat any of the Dems.  I vote in the primary for the person that I align with in morals, positions dealing with today's social issues, and whether or not they can tell the truth form a lie---And most importantly, whether they have the nads to stand their ground when they know they are right!   I care about immigration as there has been a lot of talk about walls, paths to citizenship, fines, legalizing, etc.  What I haven't heard is why don't they increase the punishment for citizens that hire
  15. 20 GA break-down with a hammer!  I had a 16 GA and my brother got a 20 GA when we were 12 and 11 respectfully.  Both of us used them until we were into our twenties for almost everything!  You can't miss with a good 20 GA for your son---Or daughters which was my gift to my daughter when she was 12!
